My dad used to work for constellation wines, they own the corona/Pacifico/Modelo brewery on the other side of the Texas border. The shit they have to go through to make sure the employees are not dirty and that the cartel isn’t taking over is amazing. They basically have a private police force the checks up to make sure nobody is living above their means. Wild shit.Mexico has cartels to deal with.
US companies will not be able to compete in the retail market if they bring manufacturing back to the US. As Panzer said, hard to pay people in the US $15/hr when we can pay the Chinese $0.15/per day.
If everyone banded together and fuck you to the Orient, maybe. But that won't happen. If we pulled out of China we'd just hop down the street to next shit hole in India.
I beg to differ... If it was better quality, I would pay more. Better quality = longer lasting = less I spend in the long run.True. Most people don't/won't want to pay $49 for a 36 qt. cooler when they can get it for $29 made in China.
We largely stopped that shit from the Chinese recently. The CCP, Feds and state government all did various things to shut down the Chinese buying to get money out of the country. They're still doing it, but not lke it was.In 10 years the Kung Flu is forgotten, and the US addiction will be worse than ever. Compounded by wealthy chinese nationals who are buying up real estate world wide at an unbelievable rate. Witness Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Washington State, parts of CA.
this.The Chinese communist gov has killed 100 million of its own people. But they get a pass on that just like they get a pass on everything else they do thats fucked up.
that is what i'm banking my future on, but it has been happening, at least in the PNW hipster bullshit places for at least a decade.What if buying USA goods were to become in vogue again? :ShockingIdeas:
People pay out the ass for brands that depict opulence. You guys don't think people are willing to spend more for a product that says something about them to other people?
Yep. It's crazy.My dad used to work for constellation wines, they on the corona/Pacifico/Modelo brewery on the other side of the Texas border. The shit they have to go through to make sure the employees are not dirty and that the cartel isn’t taking over is amazing. They basically have a private police force the checks up to make sure nobody is living above their means. Wild shit.
Agree.Its gonna be hard to beat a country that has 100’s of millions of people that will work for dollars a day, and a place that lets pollution run rampant.
